Not sure if it's a pet card (if so I totally get it, I do that too) but personally I'd drop the Tectonic Giants and put in 2 of the Lightning Bolts from your sideboard and then put 2 Blood Moons in the sideboard since the Giant isn't doing what your deck wants to do which is stack spells and mana as quick as possible to get one of your ETB or Storm combos going. It seems at best to only pull you some cards if it attacks or someone throws removal at it and it doesn't have haste.

Light Up the Stage , Magmatic Insight , Dangerous Wager , or Needle Drop would help keep the cards coming much faster.

I run a more burn-oriented deck with an elemental sub-theme that uses those cards and the Steam-Kin and it performs pretty well: Unpunctuated Fire

Adding some creatures for a mix of some aggro with the burn is usually good (e.g. Monastery Swiftspear ). Eidolon of the Great Revel is also a powerhouse. Browbeat is bad, if you want to run draw Light Up the Stage is much better, or maybe Magmatic Insight to get rid of your dead lands.

Incinerate and Lightning Strike suck, I'd go up to 4x Searing Blaze and 4x Rift Bolt instead.

For the sideboard, Red Elemental Blast (and Pyroblast ) are both not legal in modern. Chain Reaction is two expensive and late game, Curse of the Pierced Heart is way too slow and Reverberate is usually not great either. I'm not too well versed in burn sideboards so I won't give any suggestions here -- you can probably find plenty of good suggestions on google.

This is such a cool deck idea! My only thought would be maintaining enough cards in hand, especially given your number of 0 CMC cards that will likely be depleted immediately after Pia's Revolution is cast. I might consider adding some draw strength like Dangerous Wager or Magmatic Insight to supplement this, and keep you dropping artifacts on your opponents at a dangerous pace!

Honestly this is a really cool deck, great work!

Looks like a fun deck with a solid sideboard! Magmatic Insight is a great card i didnt think of before, might also think about including that one in my deck ;) Would really like to see how a duel would turn out haha!

Hi X-Factor11105.

The deck already had Tormenting Voice but I just posted an update (see above) that removes both Tormenting Voice and Magmatic Insight . I also agree with your recommendation of Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire . He's perfect in this deck!

I'm confused by your suggestion of Dream Devourer . I may be missing something, but it doesn't seem to do anything for this deck.

Thanks for your feedback!

jpermar that's helpful to know! So how come you're running it over Tormenting Voice ?

For what it's worth, I have run a Bladewing the Risen that wants to rummage in order to fill the yard with Dragons, so I'm wondering if the mana efficiency of Magmatic Insight is more worthwhile than including Tormenting Voice , especially when Thrill of Possibility does the same thing at instant speed.

Do you think Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire and Dream Devourer are a little too slow to activate to find their way in here? You'd need to look into how Devourer stacks with Rakdos (eg. does the total mana cost of a creature, if foretold after any damage is dealt, keep that reduced CMC, minus two?) but both are flavor fits and get the tools you want into hand / onto the field a bit. One may slot in over Pilgrim's Eye , though I'm not sure about the second spot...
